‘The Qatari government has set up a multimillion-dollar plan to influence American public opinion by training a new generation of journalists who will legitimize antisemitic, anti-Israel and anti-American positions.
Never heard of Sally Rooney but undoubtedly many out there have. She is ‘An Irish author whose novels have topped the New York Times bestsellers list has prevented her most recent book from being translated into Hebrew, due to her support for a cultural boycott of Israel.
Sally Rooney allowed her two previous books, Conversations With Friends and Normal People, to be translated to Hebrew and published by Israeli press Modan, but she had a change of heart when it came to her third novel, Beautiful World, Where Are You?
Rooney’s agent turned down a bid from Modan to translate and publish the book, citing her pro-Palestinian stance, according to Hebrew language daily Haaretz.
“When Modan approached Rooney’s agent in an attempt to sign another translation deal, the agent announced that Rooney supports the cultural boycott movement [BDS] of Israel and therefore does not approve translation into Hebrew,” Haaretz reported.
During the May 2021 Gaza-Israel conflict Operation Guardian of the Walls, Rooney signed an open letter urging “an end to the support provided by global powers to Israel and its military; especially the United States,” and calling on countries to “cut trade, economic and cultural relations” with the Jewish State.
Since putting the following on this blog DuckDuckGo has up and gone the way of Google. Therefore, we need to be very discerning in what social media platforms we not only use but promote.
‘Is Google still your default search engine? If so, you are helping an anti-Bible, anti-morality, pro-sodomy, pro-perversion, anti-God company with every search you make. They also intend to censor you and to eliminate your voice if they can. For example, if you search for “Homosexuality is wicked,” the top result (as of when I wrote this article) is an article that laughably claims that sodomy is not condemned by Scripture, and other pro-sodomy articles are in the top page of results. If you search on the search engine DuckDuckGo, the top result is an article entitled “Five Biblical Reasons Homosexuality is Worse than Most Other Sins” and practically every other article on the first page is anti-sodomy, with the anti-sodomy articles being stronger against this perversion than the ones on Google. Do you really think that the top results on Google are unbiased, or is Google putting a heavy thumb on the scale? If you search for “scientific creationism” on DuckDuckGo, the first page includes links to the Institute for Creation Research and Answers in Genesis. Neither website is on the first page in a Google search. Do you think that is by chance? If you search for “Hunter Biden China collusion,” the top result on DuckDuckGo is an article from the leading conservative organization National Review entitled “A Collusion Trail: China and the Bidens.” On Google, National Review does not appear anywhere on page one and this article is at the very bottom of page 2. Chance? Oh, no!
DuckDuckGo is not specifically conservative–it just doesn’t have the leftist bias of Google. DuckDuckGo just puts up what most people actually are searching for when they do Internet searches. While some interaction with wicked companies is unavoidable, breaking your tie with Google here is easy. Open your “preferences” file in the browser(s) you use right now (it may be some dots in the top right corner of your browser, or it may be in a menu) and change the default search engine from Google to DuckDuckGo. Do it on your phone. Do it on your laptop. Do it on everything. Google wants your data to make money, but it doesn’t want your beliefs. It wants to destroy them. Stop giving Google money with your Internet searches, and resist Google’s censorship of God’s truth. It takes about five minutes. Do it now.’https://kentbrandenburg.com/2021/07/02/fight-googles-censorship/
